Extremely unpleasant and sometimes dangerous, as in anaphylactic shock
(See :edema), urticaria always needs a background treatment.
Urticaria can be caused by : allergic reactions (See : allergy, asthma, erythema, itching) to certain foods or drugs (See : food poisoning, since), infections
(See :abscess, infections), or emotional stress (See : fears, tetany).
“Nervous urticaria” will need nervous system drainage (See : nervousness).
A homepathic analysis of the case will help to determine the deep mechanisms and heal the patient.
Drainage is essential.
The acute remedies can be used also in chronic cases.
